Looks good

Pros: It's obviously that this laptop is so light and has a charming overview. Speed is ok, but not that fast.

Cons: 1. Although has ION graphic cards, it cannot play 720p movie with enough frame number, which means the HDMI plot maybe useless because you cannot extend the laptop screen into your LCD/LED TV to enjoy the movie.

2.the skin is fragile.
3.system is 32bit.

Other Thoughts: Is the Graphic Drive problem?

I found that this Memeroy type is DDRII 800. Does this laptop support DDR3?

still just a netbook

Pros: It has a high resolution screen.

Cons: It's severely limited by the atom processor. I should have known because the small amount of cache on it. The reviews I've read on it make it sounds like it would handle high def content. After a fresh format/Windows install and all the proper drivers/codecs installed it even struggles with standard def content. 720p and 1080p content is totally not playable. Look elsewhere if you want something more than just a netbook.

Other Thoughts: I bought the silver version thinking that case was brushed aluminum, it's not. It's cheap plastic painted with streaks.

Acceptable for light gaming!

Pros: Really nice netbook. I use an Acer business-class netbook for work, and had a 7.9" Acer Aspire One for casual home use. I was looking for an upgrade and wanted something that would support light gaming, and this is it! Some excellent features: The LED backlit display is easily best-in-class, and makes the entire machine lighter (and a bit more durable, too). HDMI output is an excellent feature. I love the look of the silver model, they've managed to make it look convincingly like brushed aluminum. The keyboard (see also cons) is nice, soft and requires only a light touch. The separated style of the keys took a couple of days to get used to. ION is excellent! Windows 7 Home Premium is featured enough for this machine. 500 GB of web storage (see cons) that you can share via URL. Atom processor and GPU allow lots of modern game software to run (See other thoughts)

Cons: Despite looking like nice, slick, brushed aluminum, the case is actually plastic. It feels especially soft and scratchable. Buy a neoprene sleeve, because I'm guessing that taking this in and out of a bag two or three times would make the lid look like a cutting board.
HDD in this thing is a pathetic 5200 RPM "Green" drive. When it comes to tech, guys, "Green" means slow + underpowered. I swapped mine for an Intel SSD, zoom zoom.
RAM module is not upgradable (far as I can tell).. One slot pre-loaded with a 2GB module. I pulled this and installed a similar 4GB module, no good. Seems like the slot won't address it. (just a shout-out, Newegg RMA'd the 4GB stick I couldn't use without complaint, thanks guys!)
Gotta say, I love the keyboard, but it also feels a little flimsy and cheap. I actually opened my machine and replaced the slow HDD, and the keyboard was kind of floppy, not very rigid at all.
Charging cable has a 90 degree bend connector, caused cable to sit in front of the GPU

Other Thoughts: I'm a big Eve-Online player (Internet spaceships, For The Win!). It's an older game, so I figured that getting it to run on this netbook would be possible. I was correct. With medium settings, this netbook runs Eve like a top. Also works for other light gaming. Runs Starcraft II at (absolute) minimum settings. Dawn of War II at playable framerates.
Thing came overloaded with Bloatware. Kind of not what I would expect from Asus. Easy to remove, nothing too intrusive. Make sure you keep your webstorage: It's great! It's also very, very slow. I use it to share small files with my online gaming pals. Battery life, even under load, is acceptable. Swapping the HDD for an SSD was very, very easy. I changed the drive in an Acer Aspire One, and it was a NIGHTMARE by comparison. My girlfriend plays Eve online as well, and I thought that this machine was so nice that I bought a red one for her. Despite it's flaws, it'll serve you well.

Great buy...

Pros: Its just the right size not too small not to big.
All the tech specs match up to the real thing.
The screen is looks so much better tha n the netbooks I've seen.

Cons: The only con I have is the keyboard portion of the computer. Maybe its me but when I'm typing the keyboard seems a little flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Pinch zoom is nice but I dont plan on using it to much. Shipping is FREE except for APO's. :(...

Great netbook

Pros: Many. Excellent screen. Great battery life. Not a frying pan. Full Windows 7 edition. Bluetooth included. 2GB makes reasonably nimble. Fast startups and also fast revived from Hibernate or suspend. Nice seamless touchpad. HDMI port, though haven't used yet, but happy it's there. Good, steady Wifi. Great netbook CPU. Great keyboard layout, not crammed at all.

Cons: Useless bloatware, though only moderate amount--easily removed. If they'd ever put some useful accessory software on new PCs.... Style of power connector--I prefer the straight in vs. the angled. But, is matter of taste.

Other Thoughts: This is a beautiful netbook. Primarily, the size, 12.1 in. I don't know about rest of you, but I find 10 in too small. This is perfect. Still under 3 lbs, the widescreen proportion makes very good fit on applications. Easily triples the battery life of my discarded Dell laptop. If you dim the screen a little (usually ok indoors), and don't do online gaming, the battery easily does 6 hrs. And why Bluetooth isn't standard on most portable equipment, I have no idea. This is great where I can easily drop photos and things off my cell phone, sync my cell phone, sometimes exchange files with another PC, or other cell.
